Colour coded fogs.

What do you guys think. Ignore the fact that car needs a wash lol

Is this a photoshop or have you already done it? I think spraying the grooves in the surround with black would look smart, like a grill or vent look. I do like a white focus

No they are painted. Did them a while back

Do quite a bit of spraying in my spare time. Bit of a hobby.

Might gloss black the grills next. Fully smooth them!

Im toying with getting mine glossed black. Think it puts a much nicer finish on the front end than the greying plastic look.

Do it!
Don't know why Ford use that crappy plastic. Surely they could have moulded the bumper to house the fogs as its the same bumper for every model except ST and RS

Yeah looks so smart !
I was going to colour code mine but going to get DRL fogs surround ( which are on their way in post) ..so will see what they look like first..
I would love to gloss black my grilles to.. I am not that good at they old spraying though .. And I am a perfectionist so it would need to be spot on if it was going on my car!

Do it !!! I wish I could paint...I would ruin them!

They are the best price I found them for. I went on to the Russian eBay and paid £56, on uk eBay they work out at £72 for the same ones...

your always gonna get dust nibs. Just flat them out of the clear and buff.

Here's a fascia I did for a buddy. It had nibs but once I'd flatted and buffed it it came out like this.
